Architectural historian Barry Lewis returns to discuss antebellum New York City, when Midtown was at Broadway and Grand Street and the brownstone-lined streets of the Upper East Side lay between Union Square and 34th Street. In this lecture and slideshow, Mr. Lewis leads us through the city as Abraham Lincoln and Robert E. Lee knew it, before the country was plunged into Civil War. 

Barry Lewis is an architectural historian and the host of a popular series of walking tours on PBS. He currently teaches at Cooper Union Forum and the New York School of Interior Design.
